My daughter and I went for a mid week vacation. Stan and Christine were wonderful hosts! Breakfast was always delicious and we enjoyed afternoon snacks-the Pecan Cookies were fabulous! Very quiet and clean inn. We loved the waterfront area dining and shopping. We enjoyed a short drive to Atlantic beach.Would stay here again!

Outstanding B & B

Excellent Beginner Experience

Me and my husband decided to try a bed and breakfast for the first time about a month ago. We ended up picking the Pecan Tree Inn and had a great time there. We stayed 3 nights in "Rachel's Room". The room was warm and inviting, with a bed that was more comfortable than my bed at home. Everything was kept very clean and we just felt right at home. Breakfast in the morning was just right. The fresh brewed coffee was delicious and David always had something different set out that he had baked each morning. There was another guest there with special dietary needs (gluten-free) who was very happy with how accommodating they were with creating special treats for her. The inn is located just off of the main road, along the waterfront, so driving was hardly ever necessary. We would just walk down to the water, shops and restaurants. We even found a neat old small bar close by. There is also a really cool cemetery from the 1700's, within walking distance, that is open to the public until dark. Overall, this was a wonderful and very relaxing getaway, all thanks to the Pecan Tree Inn. We will definitely be going back there again. Amber & Phillip, Atlanta

A lovely getaway

Pecan Tree Inn is a beautiful home with hospitality galore and delicious breakfasts. Just a few steps from the quaint shops and waterfront of Beaufort but quiet and private. The rooms are tastefully furnished with all the comforts of home. We will definitely stay there again. Jim and Linda Hagen Kent, WA

Pecan Tree Inn is delightful

I only stayed for one night since I was in town on business. Definitely plan to return for a pleasure trip so I can explore more. Great location. Lots of shops and restaurants just out the door. Clean, quiet, and charming. Chocolates by the bedside always a plus for a chocolate lover like me. Breakfast was good too!

Peaceful with elegance.

We spent two very wonderful nights here, just off Front Street. Great dinning and wonderful shops all within walking distance. Sherry, our host, made our stay even that much better. Thank You! We will be back. Joe & Shirley, Pensacola

Great Inn !!!! Great People !!!! Great City !!!! Absolutely the best vacation spot in North Carolina. Excellent places to eat.

The best B & B we have ever stayed in!

The Pecan Tree Inn was a wonderful find. We needed to be in Beaufort to view progress on a boat restoration, so we were only there one night. It was such a pleasant B& B, comfortable, inviting, quiet and in an excellent location. The innkeeper, Dave met us in the evening, which was a nice surprise and we immediately felt right at home. The inn is close to the waterfront/harbor, restaurants and shops. The breakfast was the best, with homemade coffee cake, muffins and breads, as well as fresh fruit and yogurt choices. Our stay, though it was brief, left us wanting to come back again, soon.
